Gabrielle Marcotti has tipped Liverpool FC to invest in a new goalkeeper, centre-half or midfielder rather than Paulo Dybala this summer.

The Reds have been linked with a move to sign the Argentina international in the 2018 summer transfer window to bolster their attack.

Liverpool FC have funds to spend following Philippe Coutinho’s move to FC Barcelona in a £142m deal back in January.

The Merseyside outfit have signed Brazil international Fabinho in a £39m deal from Ligue 1 side AS Monaco.

Jurgen Klopp has also added Guinea international Naby Keita to his squad following a £48m switch from RB Leipzig.

ESPN FC reporter Marcotti believes Liverpool FC still need to improve some key areas in the pitch rather than splash out a big fee on Dybala.

“I think if Liverpool are going to go and spend some money, they’re certainly other areas of the pitch I would spend the money on,” Marcotti told ESPN FC.

“Maybe goalkeeper, maybe centre-back, maybe another body in midfield since Emre Can has gone. I just don’t see Dybala as a priority for Liverpool.”

Liverpool FC finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last season to ensure their continued participation in the Champions League.

The Reds lost 3-1 to La Liga giants Real Madrid in the Champions League in Kiev following goals from Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema.
